Sound Settings

Ringhio Notifications has support notification sounds since version 53.37.

Sound can be configured globally and also set for an application-by-application basis.

  • Global Sound Settings: the settings for this are under the Preferences tab in the Notifications Preferences. Sound can be enabled/disable, volume set and the sound sample file selected for all notifications.
  • Application Sound Settings: the settings for this are displayed by clicking the Config button under the Application List tab in the Notifications Preferences. The respective application must be selected in the list before clicking the Config button. The sound settings can be set to either Global, Custom or Disabled.
